hey you guys. ill begin with my setup and programs, then tell you the problem. G5 1.6 1GB Ram Radeon 9600 OS 10.3.2 Final Cut Pro 4 HD okie. So here it goes. ive been messing around more and more with editing as im trying to learn as much as I can to start my editing career. Im kind of frustrated with my setup and im not sure if its my system, some setting or just works like this? when I import a 2:45 quicktime movie lets say in FCP and place it in the time line, I spend a good 25min just rendering it. then once im done makin the video I want from it and want to export it out as a small quick time file so i can post on the web, the video is now down to about 1:20 and it takes it a good 30-40min just to export out? am I missing something here or does it seem that its taking my system a tad to long to do these or just normal?
